Dose Monitoring

Radiation Users and Nuclear Energy Workers (NEW's) whose main source of exposure is from Beta, Gamma or Neutron sources may be subject to routine, continuous monitoring by means of thermoluminescent dosimeter (TLD) which is worn at all times during working hours. Such monitoring is mandatory for NEWs and recommended for Radiation Users, with some exceptions. In addition, NEWs who may be exposed to neutrons must carry a separate neutron badge. Monitors are provided by the EHS Office from a service through Health and Welfare Canada.

For information on dose limits, refer to Chapter 3 of the UNB Radiation Safety Manual.
